The 6100's case is the smallest in the series of the first three Power Macs. The casing was neatly divided into three thirds. The first third contained the Apple logo and the painted name Power Macintosh 6100 (with minor variations based on the speed of the Power Mac). The second third contained the CD-ROM drive. The floppy drive was on the top part of the final third, with the pea-sized, embossed power button on the lower right-hand corner of the final third.
